NASA's Juno spacecraft has finally made it all the way to Jupiter.
The solar-powered craft took off from Earth in 2011 and is now orbiting Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system.
Juno burned its engines for 35 minutes in order to slow down its velocity by more than 1,200 miles per hour in order to safely enter the planet's orbit. In total, it traveled about 1.7 billion miles before reaching destination.
